I dabble in eating low carb occasionally so when I was invited to participate in a recipe challenge with Steviva, I was excited to create something that would be satisfying and be delicious. Steviva has all natural sweeteners that are terrific options for clean label cooking and baking. All of their sweeteners are low glycemic and free of chemicals and can be used to replace table sugar and powdered sugar in recipes.
Smoothies are my go-to breakfast meal so when I received my products, I decided to go with erysweet as the sweetener in my smoothie. Erysweet is 70% sweet as sugar, doesn’t have an aftertaste and is perfect for beverages and smoothies. It is a great replacement for table sugar and a near 1:1 sugar replacement.
Since it’s fall and I’ve been craving all things pumpkin, I knew a pumpkin smoothie was the perfect thing to whip up. The smoothie is packed with pumpkin spice and the right amount of sweetness.
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/3 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp erysweet
1/2 cup ice
In a blender, mix all ingredients until smooth. Add more ice if you would like it thicker. If desired, top with fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
